This is my reward for swimming at the Rose Bowl at 5:30am The fresh pastries are delicious and the staff is very friendly. If I am in the mood for spicy sandwiches or a little sweet corn cake, this bakery offers a variety of choices which are always very good. The coffee and tea blended drinks are native to Mexico. The Goldline train is across the street and makes the connection to downtown LA and people watching interesting.

La Monarca is quite popular for its pastries, but the real reason I go to this little bakery is because of their polvorones (my daughter squeals at the mere sight of them) and their coffee grounds. See, this bakery gets it. Instead of throwing coffee grounds (urban gold) away, they package it up give them away for free to anyone who wants them. Polvorones AND coffee grounds? You don’t have to ask me twice.

I love this place. The coffee is really really good. Also, if you like the smell of fresh baked pastries then just stay there for 5 minutes. The internet is really fast and the staff is really nice. Plenty of seats and plugs.

Certainly the best bakery in the neighborhood, and would rate top 5 in the city. Friendly staff, good atmosphere and croissants that actually taste like, well, croissants.
